The Mozart Question

Paulo Levi is a world-famous violinist, but he refuses to play Mozart. Why? When Lesley travels to Venice to interview him, she learns the heartbreaking answer. For the first time in his life, Paulo tells his moving and terrible story – a tale of music, hope and survival set in the Nazi concentration camps. An unforgettable story which reaches from the Second World War into the present day, illustrated with Michael Foreman’s magnificent colour artwork.

“Beautifully illustrated, this is a moving tale of secrets, lies and the past.” The Independent

    This is an excellent book. Michael Morpurgo makes you believe that this is a ‘musical’ story, however, you realise that it is based on WWII! This is the best book, which I have ever read and I would give it 10/10 every time!
